Sunday could be final home game in New Orleans Saints uniform for safety Roman Harper

Duck Dynasty's Willie Roberson is in the background in the picture!


If you hadn't noticed, only a few New Orleans Saints remain from the 2009 Super Bowl team.

In the four years since the Saints upended the Indianapolis Colts in Super Bowl XLIV, the roster has been overhauled almost entirely, especially on defense.

Only five defenders remained from 2009 when the Saints opened training camp in late July. Season-ending injuries to linebackers Will Smith and Jon Vilma and cornerback Jabari Greer have reduced the number to two: safeties Malcolm Jenkins and Roman Harper.

The longtime friends and backfield mates will take the field against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Sunday. And Jenkins and Harper know it very well could be the final time the duo protects the back end of the defense as a tandem.

"I hadn't thought about it. But if it is, it is," Harper said when asked if this could be his final home game as a Saint. "If I've got to come here with another team, I'll do that, too."

I like Harper. I would keep him over Jenkins. We will switch to a 3-4 next season and Harper could be very handy.Although his salary might need to be tweaked.

People can defend Harper, but their has not been anyone that has burned us so much especially in key games than Roman Harper.

Theirs plenty proof to back it up, last week vs Carolina 2 big plays he was the target, San Fran playoffs 2011 he was the target, Seattle 2010 he was the target. Hes been the target and recipient of too many TDs thrown on the defense in recent years, he usually gets pissed off because of it that hes in someones face after the play talking ****, remember a couple years ago when he hit Steve Smith in the end zone? All Harper does is take bad angles, bad judgement, and is not speedy enough to even be out there.

With Vaccaro gone, its going to get worse for Harper.

People wont admit it, hes the new Jason David of this era. Do away with him, things like this will get cleaned up.

Leave it brother, we are fighting a losing battle when it comes to defending roman harper, the threads never end and no praise we give him will be listened to

If it is his last game as a saint, i for one will miss him on the field

Most sacks by a safety in the NFL
Pretty much won the season opener with 2 huge turnovers

A starter for 8 seasons, under 3 different coordinators, two pro-bowl appearances etc etc...

And some jackwaggon dares to compare him to Jason David?

Asininery, complete asininery.

I wouldn't go that far. Harper will be back.

Vaccaro > Harper

Bush > Jenkins

IMO they both walk in the off-season.

Re: Sunday could be final home game in New Orleans Saints uniform for safety Roman Harper

God not this again! Offense has a bad game its Harpers fault, Kicker misses a FG to lose a game its Harpers fault. Harper Harper Harper. Heres an idea how about we get LB's who can cover And stop putting Harper in tough spots.
